STD tests from patients who reside in LA County should be sent to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health STD Program within one working day after the health care provider, or other person authorized to retrieve the report, has been notified.

Please fill out the gonorrhea/chlamydia or syphilis report form and send to the STD Program by fax or mail:
